About the property

1 bed, 2 bath on the beach, whale watch from our lanai, air conditioned comfort

Vacations are about choice, and if you choose quiet comfort, a beautiful ocean front setting with an expansive soft sand beach meeting gentle warm waters look no farther. You come to Hawaii to enjoy the beaches, stay on an excellent one, Sugar Beach. Separated from the crowded city-front beaches our beach offers many miles of soft sand for children to play on, walkers to walk or jog on and strollers to stroll on. Our property enjoys beach front Barbecues with tables and chairs for day and evening enjoyment; nature provides glorious sunset dinners as everyone looks for the 'green flash.' Warm days invite you to choose between reading or napping under the palm trees and umbrellas, taking a dip in the warm ocean or heated pool or walking over to the farmer's market to select fresh island foods. The shave-ice store is also a favorite, this is not your father's snow cone.

Low Season Rate $135/night: April 16 - December 14 + Hawaii tax

Add ocean and mountain views to your morning coffee, spot whales in season, enjoy a quiet sun-set; all from your private Lanai. If all this sounds enjoyable you will be pleased to discover more. Beach towels, chairs and coolers provided, 32'' full HDTV reception in the bedroom, secure key-less entry with your pre-selected private entry code (all guest codes are removed when guests leave), laundry facilities just steps away, manicured grounds, free parking, free cleaning, free wireless internet and a central island location for activities such as golfing, fine dining, scuba and snorkeling, visits to Lahaina, Kaanapali, Iao Valley, Wailea, Paia, Hana, Haleakaia and more.

About Donald

My wife, Linda, and I have traveled the world, and continue to do so, the photo was taken near the entrance to Monet Gardens in France, just outside of Paris. We discovered our Maui Sugar Beach location on one of our travels and fell in love with the unique property, purchasing our unit sight unseen by internet & mail once we returned home. We continue to upgrade our island home and our efforts have resulted in a 'Deluxe' rating and one of the highest booking calendars of the Nani Kai Hale! We know Maui!

Donald purchased this condo in 1999

Why Donald chose South Maui

After attending several 'wine & cheese' time share presentations for properties that were 'near the beach' we discovered our 'right on the beach' property with permanent owners and fell in love with the warm sharing and gatherings that occur daily around the beachfront barbeque area. With six miles of soft sand beach to stroll along with lawn & fresh water pool there is much to enjoy! The 'Nani' experience is truely unique.

What makes this condo unique

With only 46 units our property enjoys a special 'bonding' of guests & owners alike, some guests have been returning for 20 to 30 years because they feel 'at home' when they gather around the lawn and barbeque area for the many spontaneous sharings of food and stories daily. The protected cove provides a safe water and beach environment that is a magnet for children of all ages, our central Maui location is the perfect jumping off spot!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sadly our vacation is over. Would like to stay longer, but must get back to work so we can come again. Had a great time. Thanks for the lovely place to stay. The coolers were great when we went to Hana. We couldn't have ask for anything else. We will be back."

My husband and I will definitely be back.....Thanks Don!

A Great Stay In Nani Kai Hale Unit 504!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week stay in Nani Kai Hale #504 couldn't have been better! The accommodations in this condo were first class all the way from the updated decor to the personal touches throughout the condo that made it extra-special. The beautiful furnishings were comfortable and we so appreciated the 2 recliners to relax in after a busy day! Comfort was an important piece for us in choosing this condo. It was the most clean, complete and organized condo we have ever stayed in! We wanted for nothing!

We loved being right on Sugar Beach where it was quiet and uncrowded the whole time we were there. The pool was beautiful and a favorite place to relax in the afternoon. The grounds were well-attended and meticulous.

The communication from owners, Donald & Linda, from the first the informative the attentive phone calls upon arrival & departure...was excellent. They truly care about their renters!

We will absolutely recommend this condo to anyone considering a trip to Maui!

George & Lisa's stay at the condo!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha!! Fantastic all the way around!! Clean place and plenty of space in the unit. Donald is very knowledgeable about Maui and very helpful suggesting things to do and places to eat out. A very well stocked kitchen with everything you need for a long stay. The beach chairs, towels and coolers are great to have there to use and take to the beach. If you have any questions and need to call Donald, he's calling you back within minutes if he doesn't answer. I picked this unit for two reasons. Price was one, you can't beat the quality and service for the price your paying. The second was Donald's great reviews on VRBO. The location is great and the grounds are kept up to very high standards. It's not a noisy place at all and everyone there is very nice. The beachfront grass area is very nice along with the pool and BBQ setup they have outside. There's great parking all around the building and there's carts to haul luggage or sacks of groceries up the elevator to your unit. We met regulars that stay at or own units at NKH and they would recommend places to go and explore and things to do. Everyone there is fantastic and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat or recommend it to anyone!!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were able to enjoy morning coffee with ocean and West Maui mountain views from our 5th floor vantage. Whale watching in season from the lanai is so special. Our guests discover the written description of our Maui home and photos on our website are actually what we deliver; comfort, quality and owner attention. We hope that you were able to take advantage of all the information on Maui highlights that we provided, if not you just need to return and enjoy even more. Mahalo from Donald and Linda for sharing with others.

Just a few steps from paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the condo was perfect! We had a chance to relax. The condo and its area are very quiet and clean. Everything we needed was there for us. My wife and I enjoyed drinking our Maui coffee out on the balcony every morning. Donald was very kind and attentive with any questions or concerns we had with the property. It is located close to many things, walking distance to ABC store and a coffee shop. We can't want to come back.
